MUSD collecting winter coats for homeless students

Maricopa Unified School District’s Homeless Education Program is seeking donations of solid-colored zip or button-front jackets for distribution to its homeless student population.

“As the weather starts to change, we find there is a need for Arizona appropriate winter outerwear,” said Micki Schroeder, MUSD Homeless Education Program liaison.

Jackets are needed for ages four to 18. Donations should be new or gently used and may be sent to school with your student to give to the secretary or registrar, or dropped off at the school district office, room 215, at 44150 West Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. through Nov. 30, 2010. 

For more information, contact Schroeder at 520-568-5100, ext.1035.
